Interesting...

If they don't mind you standing on the seat, apart from the danger, then perhaps they could consider spending their money on a shock-absorbing pavement under the bench instead of a silly sign on the back of the bench...
Bill Phillips: I thin they should just remove the silly sign and let stupid people stand on it and if they fall off then tough
If they are sitting down they couldn't read the sign anyway Bill... it's a waste of good white paint....petersmile
Bill Phillips: That's true Peter smile
Funny catch there Bill!
Bill Phillips: All part of the paranoia that we are surrounded with since we imported the idea of no win no fee ambulance chasers from you lot grin

a thoughtful nanny town! But I cannot see: Where is there a seat?
Bill Phillips: That is the back of it Philine

It would undoubtedly be safer to stay at home & not go to Suffolk at all if it is such a dangerous place
Bill Phillips: We survived. I think it is just scaremongering

"Don't worry. Be happy. Life is short." That might be a better sign? HA!
Bill Phillips: You wouldn't be singing that if you fell off Ginnie!

Presumably the seat is 100 ft up?
Bill Phillips: Um no....it is just a normal, quite dull, seat

It is what it is
Bill Phillips: Very profound vintage
They should have written it with a flashy red paint Bill! Great capture.
Bill Phillips: That would be a bit dramatic for Suffolk Richard

I would have written - Do not slit your wrists on this bench, danger of bleeding to death.
Bill Phillips: That would be sound advice Ridge
Just keep walking.
Bill Phillips: You go right off the idea of sitting down

A sign of the times. "Don't stand up, your blood pressure may rise"
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Louis. It is all because of these no win no fee ambulance chasing lawyers. Paranoia about being sued

What about if you wear a hi-viz vest, ear defenders and safety glasses, though? How about a sign saying "DO not sit on the seat - risk of splinters"?
Bill Phillips: Good point. And slippery when wet.
Simply subtle signage .
Bill Phillips: As subtle as being hit between the eyes with a house brick Martin
A Chris design then smile
Bill Phillips: It could well be John, but he wouldn't have given a warning

As long as you were able to sit and look at that interesting wall, there wouldn't be the temptation to stand and fall
Bill Phillips: You would have to twist round to see it which wouldn't be very comfortable Anne
Let em' stand,Darwinism works! smile
Bill Phillips: I have to agree Frank
Common sense really, are they a bit thick in Suffolk.
Bill Phillips: It is aimed at thick tourists I think......oh

I hope this bench is in could shape and like Tiffs bench, that is even a danger to watch.....
Great find.
Bill Phillips: It was rock solid and difficult to fall off Lady P
Don't some of these jobsworths really "P" you off, well they do me!!
Bill Phillips: All part of the no win no fee blame culture Brian. Self defence!
I shall probably never stand on a seat ever again!!!!
Bill Phillips: They are taking all the fn out of life Tom

One of the administration officers needed access to my computer at work. As she went to sit in the desk chair she fell. Instant incident report. My chair (work place health and safety) now has a label that reads,'caution when sitting chair could move'. The other option was to buy new chair with brakes. I've used it for 2 years and managed to stay upright
Like the Suffolk council they don't want to be sued if someone falls off that seat.
Bill Phillips: Yes the no win no fee "lawyers" have a lot to answer for
A little over the top, Bill - inspired by 'The Wright Way' perhaps?
Bill Phillips: I have no idea what the Wright way is Martin grin
Do not get out of bed in the morning. Danger of pretty well everything.
Bill Phillips: Basically that about sums it up Graeme
"worrying" is right. not for this seat but the thought process demonstrated by the sign
Bill Phillips: It is all about the fear of being sued. These days however stupid someone is somebody else must be to blame and have to pay compensation.

Don't you hate it when someone copies your photo, but does it better?
Bill Phillips: It has never happened so I wouldn't know
